This is an archive related to a previous version of Esri Maps for SharePoint. If you need the current version go to http://doc.arcgis.com/en/maps-for-sharepoint/.
Esri Maps for SharePoint provides an intuitive experience for editing features, including changing their geometries and attributes, adding attachments, and creating and deleting them. Editing is available for layers within ArcGIS Server dynamic map services and Spatial Data Service layers (feature layers) if the service was published with feature access enabled. For more information, see Layer types and Publishing feature services. Editing features is only available in the feature pop-up, not the feature data grid.
Once a feature layer has been added to the ArcGIS Map Web Part, editing an existing feature can be done by clicking the feature to display its pop-up. The pop-up includes buttons to add attachments, change the feature's values, edit its geometry, and delete it. See Pop-up windows for more information. If your users need to be able to add new features, enable the Add Features panel included with the Map Web Part. With the Add Features panel, users can create features by selecting the type of feature they want to add and drawing it on the map.
Editing for feature layers is not enabled by default in the ArcGIS Map Web Part. This ensures that only the layers you want can be edited by your users. You can choose which layers can be edited, as well as other editing options, as follows:
Editing cannot be enabled for layers that have clustering applied. If you attempt to enable editing on a clustered layer, you are prompted to turn off clustering.
The Advanced Editing Tools section contains tools intended for power users with advanced editing scenarios. When enabled, these appear on a toolbar at the bottom of the Add Features panel.
Once you have specified the layers to edit, the pop-ups for those layers include the following editing tools:
If your users need to create new features, include the Editing tool in the Application tab on the ribbon. For information about including tools on the ribbon, see Configure the ribbon. With this tool included, users of the Map Web Part can click the button on the ribbon or the editing tab to open the Add Features panel, which displays the types of features that can be created.
You can create features using the Add Features panel as follows:
